Tradition — a strong element
at The University of North
CaroHna at Greensboro. Since
the University's founding in
1891, students, faculty, and
administrators have proudly
continued in the path begun by
Charles Duncan Mclver. The
people who are The University
of North Carolina at
Greensboro of today cherish
the school's rich history. The
chance to become a part of this
tradition draws a new group of
students each year.
Lifestyles — a synthesis of
new ideas springing from the
interactions with new friends,
with nature, and with the
University's environment. As
the campus fills up with life in
mid- August, UNCG becomes
the home of many unique
and credos that mesh with the
architectural surroundings to
form a collage of personality
that is the spirit of the
University . . . both good and
Challenge — coming in, no
student knows exactly what to
expect of the next four years.
How different the classes,
workload, professors, campus
life, the new taste of freedom
will be compared to the recent
high school experience. Some
will find it not so bad, others
will consider their programs
tougher than they could have
ever imagined, but everyone can
count on one sure thing: A
life-altering chance at challenge
c\\ IJNC Greensboro.
healthy existence. A certain
amount of continuous
development is required to keep
UNCG productively growing.
But at a university so tradition-
rich as this one, any change must
be carefully undertaken so that it
might blend into the beautifully
sculptured pattern that the
school has already designed.
Diversions — the growth of
the intellect and the soul cannot
be measured by the mere
amassing of cerebral volumes.
The UNCG community provides
not only for the mental growth
of students, but also for the quiet
relaxation (or re-creation) of the
after-hours student who finds his
own ways of unwinding after a
long day of grueling classes.

WHAT IS A WOMAN?
This morning, I
woke up and got ready
for my day: picked out
what I wanted to wear,
dried my hair and ate.
As I prepared to leave
my room, I took one
last look at the mirror
to make sure I looked
okay. Something hap-
pened when I looked at
my reflection. I
didn't see me. I saw a
woman. I felt like I
was looking at someone
else. That woman in
the mirror couldn't be
me- I didn't want it
to be. I wanted to run
to the comfort of my
Daddy's strong arms. I
wanted my mom to hold
me and stroke my hair
as she rocked slowly
back and forth. For a
fleeting moment , those
through my brain. But
they were gone as
quickly as they came.
I was again in the re-
flection. I shook my
head, as if to clear
the memory. I walked
out of the room leaving
the scared child be.
Now, as I have time to
sit and reflect on that
scene, many thoughts
flow through my brain.
Am I really as mature
as I think I am? As
strong? As indepen-
dent? I don't know.
Just yesterday things
seemed so clear to me.
I do know that some-
times I feel lost,
sometimes I feel like I
can do anything and
others I feel like a
helpless child. As a
woman, I want respect,
I want people to know I
am capable of doing
anything. But I also
want a man to open
doors for me, to pick
me daisies, to stand
outside my window and
serenade me, to protect
me and to love me.
I guess there ore
two "me's". One who is
that mature, indepen-
dent woman, and the
other who is scared,
helpless and very emo-
tional. So what does
that mean? I don't
know. I can't help but
think there ore other
women out there who
feel as I do. Maybe
this is what being a
woman is all about. I
think maybe I need
those two "me's". You
know, it's not so bad.
Actually, it's pretty
cool. If I didn't have
those two sides to my
personality, I wouldn't
be me at all, now would
I? Yes, this is what
being a woman means for
me: a melting together
of very emotional char-
acteristics and very
Architecture — if UNCG's
collective buildings were a piece
of music, they would sound like
Bartok's Die 6 Streichquartette.
Just as Bartok's works trace a
historic time reflected in his
complex network of textures,
colors, harmonies, and
techniques, so do the
seventy-some structures of
UNCG's nearly 200 acres plot a
time-line rich in variation. From
the centenarian Foust Building
to its infant sibling Student
Recreation Center, each building
mirrors the era of its erection.
Established in 1893 by ten
graduates of the State Normal
and Industrial College for
Women "to further the
graduates by increasing the
interest of its members in the
School and in each other."
Independent from the University
in 1994, the Association propels
common aims by offering i
opportunities for each
organization to lend strength to
the other's programs and

unique to UNCG, the Academic
Regalia comprised of three types

colors of hood linings and cap

Marshals, guest speaker, family,
friends, frolic — all combine to
celebrate this point of beginning.

With well over 10,000 UNCG
graduates living in Guilford
County, a faculty of over 600, ^
and enrollment of approximately
12,000, it is nearly impossible to
escape the impact of the
University on the Triad
community. The banks, the
symphony orchestra, hospitals,
community choruses, service
industry, churches, insurance
companies, and school system
all boast the influence of UNCG
and its graduates.
Hold on! Let's get back to
basics. Coming off of the
expansive Greedy Eighties,
there's a fresh sense of
discovering what is really
worthwhile — for our global
environment, for our physical
health, for the well-being of all
people, for our mental and
emotional selves, and for
ourselves in our relationships.
We are expanding internally,
questing for inward fullness. We
are marking today's era with
conscious and thoughtful m

The University Song
We raise our voices; let them swell
In a chorus loud and strong;
The rolling hills send back the sound
Of our triumphant song.
For in one great unbroken band
With loyal hearts and true.
Your sons and daughters stand and sing
University, to you.
Our college days run swiftly by
And all too soon we part;
But in the years that are to come
deep graven on each heart
Our motto "Service" will remain.
And service we will do.
And as we serve, our hearts will turn.
University to you.
Dear Alma Mater, strong and great.
We never shall forget
The gratitude we owe to you . . .
A never-ending debt;
All honor to your name we give
And love we pledge anew
Unfailing loyalty we bring.
